Chilean Manuel Pellegrini, coach of Real Betis, said this Saturday, after the defeat of his team (0-1) against Real Madrid, that “it was an even game” and he is “dissatisfied with the result” because his team he played “the second half conditioned by the yellow cards.”
Pellegrini said that “there were too many” the four reprimands that the Betis saw in the first half because although “Fekir’s is fair” because “it is thrown in the area”, he believes that “the others are absurd. The referee has not influenced, but the yellow ones have conditioned the party. They are things that happen “.
In addition, the Betic coach recalled that “a play that could have ended 1-0 ended in 0-1” when Juanmi missed a simple pass that allowed the rival’s counterattack and “that action unbalanced the match” against “Real Madrid, not against a neighborhood team. One or two balls change the perception. “
“They have created few chances for us, but we are lacking goals. These are periods that pass. Now there are seven games in twenty-one days but, for now, we are satisfied with the team’s performance,” added the Santiago coach at a press conference.
Manuel Pellegrini assumes that “every point that is lost is important, but no conclusions can be drawn at this point”, although “having two points out of nine possible is not a good thing”, but recalled that “last season, on the twelfth matchday “Betis” was one of the last. ” EFE
